Trump reportedly asked why the USA accepts people from 'sh*thole' countries

Some within the White House reportedly believe the comment will resonate with Trump's supporters.

President Donald Trump appeared to deny using the word "shithole" to describe countries such as Haiti, El Salvador, and other African nations during a meeting on immigration, as reported in the Washington Post on Thursday. Trump said, suggesting that more immigrants be brought into the country from places like Norway or Asia. The White House denied last month that Trump made those remarks. A report by the Washington Post claims that Trump totally trashed immigrants from mainly black and latino countries on January 11 saying "Haiti? He will always reject temporary, weak and unsafe stopgap measures that threaten the lives of hardworking Americans, and undercut immigrants who seek a better life in the United States through a legal pathway".

The remarks came during an impromptu meeting with members of Congress on a bipartisan immigration deal. In December The New York Times reported Trump said a year ago that people from Nigeria who came to the us would never "go back to their huts" in Africa.

"Perhaps the White House feels the president's remarks will be well-received in some parts of this country, among some parts of the president's base, and perhaps that is true but it doesn't make what he said any less ignorant or any less racist". In the same meeting, Mr Trump suggested that the United States should receive immigrants from countries such as Norway.

If Bell did sit out 2018 if he's tagged again, he'd be turning down a deal that far surpasses what any other back will be getting. Bell had 1,844 scrimmage yards, 11 total touchdowns and 85 receptions this past season, so he has a valid point about be valued.

One person briefed on the meeting confirmed that account to Newsday.

Cornyn said the real work for a bipartisan immigration deal will come from a group of four leading lawmakers: the No. 2 Republicans and Democrats in both the House and Senate. "We can now we say with 100% confidence that the President is a racist who does not share the values enshrined in our Constitution or Declaration of Independence", he said in a statement. "I can't understand how someone goes from making a statement in Little Haiti saying "I want to be the biggest champion of Haiti" to calling Haiti a 's***hole.' It makes me sick".

He added: "And it's just a awful thing to have come out of your mouth as a White House correspondent or a journalist, but if these comments are accurate, Wolf, I think it's just going to cause more damage, more grave damage to this presidency because it cuts to the very core of who he is". "We know he's not presidential but this a low", he said.

Others said, no explanation will make what President Trump said right for refugees.

The president was meeting with a handful of lawmakers to discuss how they might reach an immigration deal. Kevin McCarthy, R-California, Bob Goodlatte, R-Virginia, and Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, R-Florida.
